Holy shit those are cool.
My friend is starting IG and while he's set to get Cadian models, he doesn't want a "traditional" colored Cadian army. I guess because its been done to death. He's considering painting Cadians in ASL colors (pic related), although, if anyone has any other cool suggestions, I'd love to hear them on his behalf.

>> No.19142845

He could paint them like a SWAT team.

So I accidently bought an 1:72 scale KV1 and I wanted to make it into a vindicator.
I also have this stryker toy car thingy that I plan to build into an ork vehicle. My plan is to make it a rear-wheel steered halftrak, with a bigger gun.

So here's some questions:
>would it be okay if I made it multi-turreted and had the main turret wield a large template gun?
>how much would it max firepower be? I could either make it into an ork landraider with comparable firepower or drop the transport capacity and add more guns to balance

As for lenght it is longer than a landraider. Pointswise does 300pts for an high-profile 14 13 12 armor vehicle sound balanced? Gonna add some anti-vehicle capacity since my ork players have complained how my orks have no anti-armor potential and a defiler cannon.

yeah man, painting symmetrical shit is hard. So I do the following.

For simple things like templar logos, you can often using things like crosses or basic shapes as guides. Ive got a great guide in a white dwarf somewhere ill try and find

for something like this, use a stencil or use very faint lines or dots to make sure it all lines up right. Its what I did for my old dark angles army

Also, why blue and white for orks? looted smurfs?

I sketched it out and then painted it, but it got lopsided in the painting I guess
Would literally having a cut out with the design and then just painting over that and onto the model work?
When I asked my friend for a color scheme he said blue and I suggested white. Unintentionally sumrfy, I guess

Was just about to ask it, it just looks so bland right now and I have no ideas on how to spice it up
Though I have no idea what salting is, or I may, is that like putting rock salt under a coat of paint and then ripping it out?
Airbrushing is a bit above my paygrade right now, though I want to get to that soon. How hard is it to learn?
(also googling both of those right now)

>> No.19156716

pretty much, on vehicles i cut it out of paper, stick it down and paint or airbrush over it.

Salt is simple, you flick a bit or water onto the undercoat layer and then sprinkle salt paint over it. the specked paint look can be as intense or subtle as you like. You can then go back into it and create other wear on points of contact, using silver and black to show deeper or light scrapes.

the shoulder pads on this model are an example of salting

I dont actually know
The faction colours of preestablished chapters and clans used in the 40k universe are canon and used in the lore.

When making up your own scheme, its better to choose colours that dont already belong to another faction for no reason. Orks are great for stealing colour schemes due to their looting mentality. Otherwise, blue is an odd colour for orks due to their belief system of red fast, shiny luck and yellow power.

-Bretonnian Men-At-Arms.

-A spare piece from a Chimera kit as the seat for the gunner (hard to describe what the piece is, but its a flat piece of plastic with rivets molded on and a slight slope at one of the edges. Makes a good seat, just hack away at it until its the right size and it fits perfectly.

-A Sentinel pilot as the gunner.

-The bulk of the gun is from an Empire Great Cannon. The cannon's frame leans backwards slightly, so you have to glue the autocannon forwards slightly to compensate.

Pic related, its the same gun before it was painted and from the opposite angle.

Anybody have tips on greenstuffing cloaks for guardsmen?
Looking up tutorials, but any advice helps

>> No.19174891

Make a patty of greenstuff a bit larger than desired, then cut a clean square or rectangle of it out.

Let it sit for maybe 20 minutes or so; enough to still be flexible but not take up every fingerprint and toolmark on it.

Two corners will be your attachment points to the shoulders. Look at actual capes and cloaks for reference. Try not to moosh the upper side of the shape too much, try to go for folds if possible.

For the bottom, try to make the bottom edge into a somewhat s-shape, or whatever curve suits your needs.

>> No.19174983

So first time working with greenstuff, and this happens
I'm assuming the yellow putty isn't supposed to be in dried chunks, is this just bad packing by the manufacturer?

>> No.19175020


if you get the GW greenstuff where its packaged in strips side by side, this happens.

the two strips contacting each other catalyze and harden, and you get those peanut butter chunks in your mix.

you need to cut the middle where the blue meets the yellow out and throw it away, its already hard and useless when you get it.

alternatively, buy the greenstuff that comes in a little tube with a blue and yellow slug packaged separately. you'll never run out and it isn't pre-ordained to fuck up like the already catalyzed greenstuff in strip packaging.

>> No.19175066

ah, well thats shitty as all fuck

glue some sand to the base and paint it a dark colour of what you want them to be standing on, then work up the shade dry brushing, I'll use my base (pic related) as an example. It's for an ash waste/industrial ruin

Whenever I see threads like these, I want to start Warhammer. But really it's just to paint the minis.
I don't even really know, how the game is played or any of the techniques to make your minis look good. Also, I'm not sure wether to start WH 40K or fantasy, although I'm tending towards fantasy, since it's not just half of the playable races are different colored Space Marines.

Can you guys maybe tell me about the differences in playstyles between 40k and Fantasy?
Also, how long does it take, before your minis look acceptable?

>> No.19177898

Kind of wondering about the cloak. Supposed to be a counts as camo cloak, and while I don't mind that it's a bit too small for that, I'm just not sure if it looks right.

whats his arm?
and it just looks too cobbled together, the pose doesn't look right
I think its mostly the sword arm

>> No.19178098

40k imagines itself to be like black hawk down, it's really like klendathu drop in starship troopers (the film)

fantasy imagines itself to be like the start of gladiator, it's really like it's really like klendathu drop in starship troopers with swords

40k player age range is roughly 8-30

fantasy age range is roughly 16-40

fantasy is generally more expensive as you need more models

just because half the races are spess mehrines doesn't mean you have to play them, although you can if you want

depends how patient you are with the paints, pic related is my first model painted. I spent a lot of time on it so it's not too bad

>> No.19178190

How come you need more models for Fantasy?
Is there a good place to read up on stuff like races for beginners?

>> No.19178288

it's just how the game is played, 40k is supposed to be more tactical so you apparently need less guys.

Differing unit sizes.
The average unit size in 40k is 5-10.
Average unit size in fantasy is 10-20.

>> No.19178327


a 'normal' unit in fantasy is 10-20 models, certain armys can be a lot bigger (I'm looking at you skeleton spam Necromancer army)
W40k units tend to be about 5-10 (obviously with exeptions, 30 strong ork unit etc.)

try http://www.lexicanum.com/ as a starter to give you a feel for the different races, but generally going to a store and seeing what you like is best practice.

>> No.19178377

i'm also going to say, not playing 40k because there are a lot of marine codices is not a good reason not to play. There are a large number of none marine/xenos codices that are good to play with including one of the best (guard), the newest (crons/DE) and the most fun (orks)

Thanks. I'll read through some of the stuff on there.
